    That will be me tomorrow, early is better especially in the summer as any wax or sealants you apply, do not like being applied in direct sunlight. I was up semi early to go and was and wax our caravan yesterday 👍

    Other hobbies

    I’ve not played for 30 years, a bit like you mainly for fun back in the day. Never actually played for the Flyers.

    Sad Times

    They were open today, but had to queue for around an hour to get in as it was 2 at a time. They will only be open on Saturday’s until around September time as they clear out all their stock.
